The no news whatsoever re issue 2 for subscribers after this time-lag is very disappointing. I cannot help but start to think the game is up for subs.

I can now report that, thanks to John Freeman's efforts, I now have a decent copy of #7. One down, two to go.vexillia wrote:Short and sweet:
I am well and truly fed up with this P**s poor customer service. Incompetent doesn't come near describing their performance.
- I'm owed a copy of #7 from before Xmas as mine arrived badly damaged.
- I've yet to see #1 (Vol 2) which has been in the shops for weeks.
- God knows what will happen to #2 (Vol 2).
- John Freeman has not been in touch since 02 April!
- Prior to that my issues were always in the post but destined never to arrive.
No I wouldn't as I wouldn't invest everything in it.Various wrote: SID: If it's a choice between having issue 2 or a giant win on the lottery, I would rather have the lottery.
Phoenix: Surely, if you were to win the lottery, Sid, the parameters would change. You would then be in a position to buy the company, grease a few palms, and then bob's your uncle, you would get control of the magazine and its distribution network, for want of a better description, and everybody would get their copy on the scheduled release date, and joy would be unconfined.
SID: My thoughts exactly, Phoenix. My status as a comic fan survives intact.
Kid Robson: Nah! You'd lose all your lottery win on it!
DC Thomson really aren't having much luck with that character are they? Two revival attempts (The Dandy's Retro Active being the other) both cut short.tony ingram wrote:I guess now I'll never know who the new King Cobra was...
The future of STRIP, and the outstanding issues mentioned above, like subs copies of #2, are all in the hands of the publisher... who very much wants to get them sorted and get it on track. There's no point going into detail because everything is dependent on factors over which I have no influence.SID wrote:Has there been word that Strip is no more?
